Dion is now at 4,990. He will become only the 9th Syracuse player to ever score 5,000 career NBA points.

1. Melo 25,551
2. Bing 18,327
3. DC 12,884
4. Rony 9,991
5. Danny Schayes 8,780
6. Sherm 8,425
7. Billy Owens 7,026
8. Orr 5,545

If we can get Hakim back in the league for 10-15 games he could do it with some PT 4,947
-wes 4,218
- mcw 3,361
Jerami should be able to do it - 2,998

Anyone watched Dion since he came back? From the stats he’s not getting to the line at all and basically is just shooting 3’s.

Is his explosiveness not there, or is he just hesitant and rusty with his handle/timing?

Dang, playing like Frank and just launching threes won't get it done. Neither are dead eyes.

Barring injury, I would think Jerami ends up between Rony and DC.

He’s got a body that can play for years. and a game GMs will always make room for.
Yeah, getting another with 10k would help. Cant believe Rony finished 9 shy!

Had a great game last night against Golden State, but when he missed his threes, he missed badly. At least two airball threes. But, it was telling that they went to him and not wade for the last shot. He looks good. Hope he can stay healthy. Commentators were harping on how few games he's played the last two seasons.

Miami got hosed. Durant double dribbled on his last shot attempt and it wasn’t called.

In his last 5 games, Dion is averaging 17 pts, 3 assists, and 3.6 3’s made per game on 45% shooting.

Dragic is coming back which could affect his role, but good to see him playing well again after a major injury.

Dion went for 22 points, 0 boards and 0 assists tonight in a 2 point loss. 6 for 12 from three 0-2 from the line. Perfectly sums up Dion. Can’t believe he had the stones to chuck 12 threes. Actually I can.

Dion has been shooting more 3’s than ever this year. I haven’t got to watch him this year, I wonder if it’s because of his injury. Can he get to the rack like he used to?

He’s shooting 37% from 3 though, so no reason not to keep launching.

Actually this game was a bit of an outlier, over his last 10 games he’s averaging
17, 3, and 3 and from the games I saw I thought he was playing well and within the team which is reflected by the minutes he’s getting
